Ribbon solutions for the metals market
Metals are used in a wide range of sectors from construction, transportation, electronic and electrical, medical and manufacturing. Over recent years traceability has become an important factor. Thermal transfer printing has shown its simplicity and flexibility to become a leading method in this area.
ITW have thermal transfer resins that are designed to print on to specialist high temperature resistant self-adhesive and tag materials. Due to excessive temperatures 600oC plus the resin ink will melt, but will not run and then solidify as the metal cools down. The result is a resin print that is strong and extremely durable and can handle all types of weathering, high pressure washes and resistant to UV fade resistance when the metal is left outside in a yard.
